Well yes it will, special captains will have it in one piece, such as

msgid "IDS_YAMAMOTO"
msgstr "Yamamoto Isoroku"

But regular captains will have it like this:

msgid "IDS_CREW_FIRSTNAME_RUSSIA_4"
msgstr "Aleksey"

msgid "IDS_CREW_LASTNAME_RUSSIA_7"
msgstr "Kozhedub"

one day you'll be in port and your eyes will wander and you'll lock gazes with "Van Helsing" and he will know what you did...

Why not just give the captain your own real name.  Oh, that would be a kicker.

Or maybe some other name..  like..  make one up...  "Casey Ryback"

lol

I have no idea. I am totally indifferent to said person. I do know that all charges against him were kicked out (dismissed) by three separate courts on grounds of , basically, "WHAT?". I have received six down 'karma' because of my statement about the court of public opinion. To me, the social media overrides the truth and all the little sheep follow it. Inc. WG. I also rcvd two of those 'down' karma AFTER the thread was locked. NCTL.

I have no further comment.

FUGI (Not you mavfin).

You misread my intent.  You used 'Jon' and 'Dough' in your post.  Look up 'Jon Dough'.  It was a joke. 

I'm not even going to comment on Steven Seagal, other than to say not enough data to know if anything actually happened or not.  I don't like the curren't 'convict in the press' thing.  If it made through three courts, and there wasn't enough evidence, well, then that's how it is.

Ah! Copied. Jon Doe is a common law enforcement phrase for an (initially an in ID'd corpse/similar) The term ''Dough' I used was sarcasm, in reference to money, as in "I ain't got no dough". The data is easiest found in Wikipedia or if you want, go the hard way and research court records..

Tried it twice and boy am I glad I saved a copy of the original .mo file. I got this both times.

Luckily, putting the original .mo file fixed it.

Have to be careful to use the simplest text editor (Word will probably screw up the file), and only change the name inside the quotes.  Worked for me many times over.

What happens when WG does another update?  Do you have to go back and rename the Captain again?
